Filters are made to be Replaced, a Cap is on for life!
Steve Tenute, patent holder of Gutter Cap and Heater Cap, first started installing gutter protection in the early 1990’s with a competitor’s product. Despite selling a large volume during his first months, he abandoned the product due to numerous service issues involving too thin gauge material and clumsy brackets.
Steve didn’t give up on gutter protection. He knew that there was a strong need for a good product. He started to develop a design on his own and in 1993 his product was granted patent pending status.
Since 1993, he has installed over 1.5 million feet in just the Chicago area alone. Several million feet of Gutter Cap has been installed across the country by a network of exclusive dealers.
Over the years, he has made some refinements including thicker gauge aluminum alloy, and most recently he has added a roof granule finish to his newest product, Gutter Cap Stone Coat.
In the Chicago area, ice is a major concern. Steve developed an ice protection system, Heater Cap, that would safely heat the gutters to keep them free flowing and minimize the hazards and damage from ice formation on the gutters. This system was patented in 1995.
Steve has focused on being the best in the industry. Having an effective product was not enough. He founded a true factory installation certification center in Chicago in order to raise the standards on Gutter Cap installation and minimize service issues on customer’s homes.
Gutter Cap Inc. is committed to a quality product and program. The payoff is in more dealers wanting to carry the product and growing consumer awareness that this is one of the best gutter protections available.
Gutter Cap installs over the first row of shingles and gutter. The majority of debris is pushed off by the wind. The remainder is flushed off through the principle of surface tension. Rainwater adheres to the Gutter Cap and drains into the gutter while the debris falls to the ground.
There is consumer awareness that metal dome gutter protection systems are the most effective. Gutter Cap takes the design even further with a fully rounded nose, and a patented trough system. Gutter Cap has an installation training facility available in Chicago. All installers that have passed the rigorous training course become factory certified.
Gutter Cap can be installed on almost any type of roof, shingle type, and pitch from flat roofs to mansards. The patented design allows gutter cap to mount directly to the lip of the gutter without the use of clumsy brackets or clips. The panel follows the contour of the roof and blends in with the roofline making it practically invisible.
They did an excellent job! No more climbing! Made the house look great. They were very professional and pleasant.
From the young lady that gave the estimate to the receptionist to the installers, this was a very pleasant experience because of their friendliness and attention to detail.
Great craftsmanship at a fair price! Customer service was exceptional from beginning to end. Workers arrived on time to work, kept clean and conscientious. I will definitely be recommending their services to my neighbors!
